  • Style of Oskar Bakke

    Hey guys,

    I'm sorry that my first post already is a question,
    but I've been reading here for a while and didnt feel like posting anything.

    Anyways,
    I'm looking for some tipps & tricks to achieve a style similar to Oskar Bakke's.
    Dont get me wrong, I'm not looking for any tutorial through the whole process, but I have no idea where to start.

    I'm working as media designer here in Germany and we do a lot of car photography and retouching, we actually do great photos, but in a different style and I want to try some new stuff.

    I'm pretty turned on by Bakke's color grading, its just awesome.

    Would be nice if anyone of you could help me out with some sentences.

    Best Regards,
    Julien

    I'd be happy to retouch some images for you, and do them the same monotone way he does it, but that doesn't change the fact that it's all about initial capture.

    Great angle on a great lens incorporated into a great lighting set up.

      Looking at it so much of the post work is painted in. Where you need a certain amount of contour, that will take some time. Noting the name 3DArtist, make sure you output a matte or alpha for each material and each named piece of geometry. He has a before/after gif on his blog right now. It should give you some idea. In my opinion whoever is doing the work has a pretty distinct idea what direction they're going. To approximate the style I would start out by picking out my favorite pieces of reference, displaying them on a secondary display, and refer to them while I work. Start with the main car. Go from there. Some pieces should be evident. There are a couple photos where shadows of various background objects go almost black. I just don't think I would conceptually arrive at the same place.

        Your style or no style?
        by Lasse
        Hi
        I would like to hear your input on this "should a retoucher have a style?". I mean is the retoucher one that mimics the work of the photographer and does what he dosnt have the time or skills to, or does he add his own style to the pictures?
        Ofcause the retoucher needs to...

        Took a crack at Andrzej Dragan's style
        by contemporaneous
        I decided to take a crack at Andrzej Dragan's style (acknowledging that his style varies, but I think I've come pretty close to his spirit) and came up with this, after reviewing an old thread on here where some folks were trying to figure him out.

        Let me know what you think. I used the...

        Reverse engineering this style.

        Once I get past the light setup I cant seem to figure it out! I've attempted some Hiraloam, gradient maping, etc. I'm convinced the man is simply a wizard!

        Any suggestions?
